the governor of colorado signed an important gun safety bill into law, a series of bills into law. the new laws limit ammunition magazines and requires universal background checks to be paid for by gun customers themselves. they followed new york who just over a month ago became the state with the toughest gun laws in the country. outlawing magazines with more than seven rounds and gun safety is a national problem but the states are leading the way. none more than the state of new york. joining me now is the man who played the pivotal role in getting those laws passed, new york state attorney general eric schneiderman. mr. attorney general, welcome back to the show. you had a top law enforcement official in one of the biggest states in the country. tell us how you managed to get things done what congress so far has not been able to do. >> i think we ought to give credit to my colleagues in government and really on a bipartisan basis in new york, i think people seized the political moment. it was a galvanizing force and the bill that the governor and senate and assembly passed and i'm now defend
this law before. snyder and his republican allies came back in and rammed it back through. today the governor and i were both guests on "morning joe" and i pressed him on this very issue. >> governor, i think no one can defend the condition that detroit is in but how do you deal with the fact that the customers feel disenfran is chew disenfranchised decision and undermines people's right to vote because the only one who voted for kevin was you and this is something that is very disturbing that you have governors undermine the willing voters. there was a referendum last year opposed to this kind of action. you did it anyway. >> reverend, if you look at it, the old law went away. it was in response to the issues and i was elected by the people of michigan. and i think that's critically important. the citizens of detroit are my customer. >> what if i'm in detroit, reverend charles williams and others are raising this, in all due respect, and i vote for city council and mayor to represent me during the financial crisis, now you bring in someone unelected, like in pontiac we had someo
the affordable care act while using the law savings in revenues to balance their budget. claiming to protect medicare while ending the medicare guarantee for ten years for seniors. >> isn't it true, congressman, while they played this ryan budget that miss pelosi calls a hoax and while they prolong this kind of back and forward to protect loopholes that they are going to have to face a serious backlash, in your opinion? >> a number of democrats were sitting on the floor once again and we actually talked about this whole issue. it's an exercise in futility. it means nothing. it is going nowhere and it's a talking point. that's one of the things i don't like about washington. things are done as a talking point. trying to eliminate the affordable care act at this point is just not the smart thing to do and it's not going to be done. the president would veto it even if it got through the senate but it will never be brought up and they know it. millions of people probably actually think, wow, we have a chance to still kill obama care and everybody up here already knows, including those involved i
in just minutes. protect your family... and launch your dreams. at legalzoom.com we put the law on your side. >>> there's a lot of talk these days about a certain charm offensive in washington. to me, it's basically this. president obama has the charm, republicans are just offensive. today, the president continued his outreach to house republicans with a visit to capitol hill. it was described as a tense meeting. gee, i would wonder why. after all, the gop has been so welcoming. just take the gop conference chairwoman. she told her colleagues that they should not take pictures of the president or ask him for his autograph. don't get too close, he might bite. and then there's congressman ryan. just listen to his reaction to the president's so have called charm offensive. >> it didn't come across as terribly charming to me. the question is, is he going to go out on the campaign trail and start campaigning against us again like he has been since the election? was the so-called charm offensive a temporary poll-driven political calculation? or was it a sincere conversion to try and bring bec
is against gale marriage. they're called scary, and the platform backs strict voting laws. this is a party that's out of touch with reality. joining me now is congresswoman jan schakowsky, and dana milbank, column irs, first, thank you. >> this does signal a shift for the party on immigration, but how can they possibly say their principles are sound? >> well, there's no way. they haven't talked much about principles. we're going to see some of their principles tomorrow when they vote on a budget that's going to change medicare into a voucher program, a dramatic cut in education, programs for children, medicaid, the health care program for poor people, and so it's hard to understand how they retreat from being really scary, and of course there's not going to be one penny of cuts to the wealthiest of americans tomorrow, and so being the stuffy old men, i kind of translate that into a rich and stuffy old, old men, and their solutions are absolutely ridiculous. i understand for young people they decided that they need to do more celebrity concerts and events. i'm wondering who they're going to
. at legalzoom.com we put the law on your side. >>> focus groups described our party as narrow minded. out of touch. and, quote, stuffy old men. >> it turns out the narrow minded, out of touch and stuffy old men really didn't like what rnc had to say about the party yesterday. and now the gop has a civil war on its hands. the conservative national review is calling its recommendations shallow and opportunistic. donald trump is in on the act tweeting that the report was written by the ruling class of consultants who blew the election. short on ideas, just giving excuses to donors. that's right. even calling for the heads of the establishment. >> reince priebus was the head of the republican national committee when romney lost. why hasn't he been fired? karl rove ran the biggest independent pac in america, or one of them. he won 1.3% of his races. these losers are not going to save the republican party. >> wow. they usually save that kind of hate for democrats. but, of course, the loudest voice is coming from the most narrow minded of all the stuffy old men. you know who i mean. >> so the re
